My manger is an experienced person who has the detail knowledge about the mutual funds and derivatives of portfolio management in the finance field. I always tried to be there in following his footsteps and tried to learn every bit of his values and the knowledge which he passes on to us. I had to work under the finance manager and had to co-ordinate work to the employees in the finance department as well as used to audit the financial performance of the business by myself, which used to improve my interpersonal skills as well as managing skills.

* To make Research report for initiating investment proposal

* Monthly reconciliation of books of accounts.

I performed my role to the fullest sincerity and honesty as I think it's a best way to work and gain experience. I used to decide my work as per the client base if he/she is a bigger client then I used to extract all the knowledge regarding investment and give him/ her wide range of investment proposal. I developed my management skills and enhanced my knowledge while working as an intern in the company. This helped me to make the management report. I was able to understand all the departments of the company and make use of it in my management report. I was also able to understand the leadership style and motivational theories the management of the company used, both the qualities of the management helped me to prepare my management report. While working I also understood the organization structure which was also used in my report

2.2

Explain how the aims, objectives and targets will benefit the organisation and you as a learner?

Ans As I am a practical learner of life and belief in reality therefore I gain lot of knowledge if I am given real life case. I wanted to gain a lot of knowledge in the finance field so that why joined a financial firm. The Aim will benefit the company in terms of getting highly educated staff recruited which will look after the finance department as well as increase the client base by suggesting clients for investment proposal in the mutual fund scheme. Also a burden of vacancy in the finance depart as Research and Data analyst will be filled also the company will be benefited from having an updated client portfolio report as well as clean and neat books of accounts and simplified audit report of the firm.

Objectives can help the organisation to find out the motivational tools that help staff as a boost because I adopted a good team working skills as well communication skills, which worked perfectly with all the team members and got our bonding more strengthen within each one of us as this benefited the organisation to reach their objectives and targets. Often my manager used to asked for my suggestions regarding increasing in the clients base or even Research report for initiating investment proposal for which I use to research for various areas solutions for the problems given to me which the management to solve their problem, though my suggestion were not taken for approval at times. Therefore the firm is benefited with less pressure of work. The work problems of the department was cut to a great extend because of my suggested methods for problem solving, therefore the organization definitely benefited

Targets: - I adopted time management skills during the internship, it helped the organisation to reach their personal objectives and adopt new targets which may lead to the firm's growth in the service sector. Also by having a personal target 10%+ in client base the company would be benefited in the terms of having larger customer base and providing them with best available services in order to help the company for the future growth as well as client portfolio growth.

Section 3

Monitor and evaluate progress in achieving aims, objectives and targets, using relevant sources of information.

3.1

Gather information to monitor and evaluate progress from a range of sources and assistance?

The above print screen of the mail shows an appreciation letter from a client who is indeed happy with the personal conversation in investing the money in mutual fund and therefore he would like to have further investment of his capital from our firm. Therefore as the author's objective is to increase the client base by 10% and also its one of the objectives of the firm to increase the client base.

Thereafter the author has drafted a financial performance of the company after the author has joined the company in the financial year 2010.

During the financial year of 2010, there is an increase of 9.27% in the income of the company compared to the financial year of 2009. Whereas the expenditure of the company has reduced to 6.17% from the FY 2009 and the reason being that is the company has looked over their unwanted expense and therefore have curbed the unwanted expenses in the FY 2010. Though the company had reduced the expenditure, the company was faced with 33% of tax from the profit earned in the business; therefore the business was face higher income tax from the previous year. The profit after adjustments of the company was higher than the previous FY because the greater income incurred in the firm, which saw an increase of 42% in the FY 2010.

Sales data of client will added later as the concerned of authority is busy

The main aim of doing my internship was to gain knowledge in the field of finance as well as analyse the company's balance sheet for the investment purpose and manage people's money for the purposes of increasing their wealth and be part of a portfolio management team.

Therefore during the internship as an trainee assistant in Research & Data analyst I was able develop and gain my knowledge in the field of finance as well as in the field of mutual funds.

As I was a trainee assistant in the Research and Data analyst, I was able to develop my communications skills as my job was to look for new possible areas of investment therefore I had to talk to different fund managers on their views on the stock market, economy and company results etc.

The first week of my internship I had to understand the working style of the firm, their client needs, talk to the fund managers about the possible This helped me to understand the working of the firm and style of approaching clients as well as the functioning of my department.

Then I also use to conduct research for my department as my department is itself portrays research and data analyst where we need to research new possible areas for investment proposal as a result of doing this activities I improved my research skills. Thereafter also my job was also to take up and look after the company's auditing of the financial performance therefore any problems in the auditing of the firm side by side I used to improve my problem skills.

Wilson and Rosenfeld (1990, p.215) says, “The established pattern of relationships between the component parts of an organisation, outlining both communication, control and authority patterns. Structure distinguishes the parts of an organisation and delineates the relationship between them”. Organisations are structured in a variety of ways, dependant on their objectives and culture. The structure of an organisation will determine the manner in which it operates and its performance. Structure allows the responsibilities for different functions and processes to be clearly allocated to different departments and employees.

Bartol and Martin (1994, p.283) says, “The Formal pattern of interactions and coordination designed by management link the task of individuals and groups in achieving organisational goals. All companies that are available today have a structure of the positioning of its employees. It shows how work is divided and how the co-ordination works between the members of the organization. The structure also shows how the tasks and responsibilities will be delegated and the way of communication is done from the top level of management to the lower level of management.
